Very great brunch experience. I will definitely return.
The food was very good...three course meal for $25.
Great bargain on Wednesdays!
Salad was great; pasta from menu excellent as were the lamb chops (always superior!). However, the special seafood pasta dish with lobster, etc. was a profound disappointment. $25 for maybe a square inch of lobster meat (if that) encased in a misleading shell, and a smattering of some other sea food things in a very uninspiring sauce. Sounded great when the waitperson told us about the specials, but OMG! what a rip-off. Didn't want to make a fuss, so didn't send it back.
Would recommend to a friend with a warning because usually things are wonderful.
There are very few good restaurants on the Upper West Side above 96 ST, this is one of them. It is our favorite spot when we don't want to take the subway somewhere. It is authentic Italian/Sicilian cuisine always well prepared and moderately priced. There are lots of pasta options for vegetarians. Our most recent visit was New Years Eve. It was bitter cold and Regional was the perfect place to ring in 2018. We walked to it. It was full and lively. There was live music (which was a nice surprise). It was all we wanted, and more, for a low key New Years Eve.
We love Regional, our go-to local Italian. Excellent homemade pasta, tasty salads, reasonable prices and friendly service. You’ll love it.
Boozy Brunch Special was fantastic. Will definitely come back.
had been here several times awhile ago for dinner before Symphony Space and came this time with friends for brunch which is very popular here. hence, it is a bit hectic although the very hands-on owner keeps everything moving along. there are lots of children and even infants so if you want something more leisurely and low-key, this may not be the place for such a meal.
My friends and I enjoyed our dinner there, but it was very hard to hear with all the noise -- no effort has been made to put sound-absorbing ceiling tiles or space tables a little further apart. It's obviously a neighborhood hot spot (we heard brunches there are very popular) but we won't be coming back for dinner.
As always, Regional doesn't disappoint. Fresh, creative Italian food from many regions, with a solid wine list. Service can be spotty, but always good natured. We return over and over again!
Great Monday night pasta special though they just raised the price to $10. Still a good deal.
